If you're like me, and love to eat but hate cooking and cleaning, this is the cookbook you’ve been waiting for! Delicious, healthy single serving meals that take less than 20 minutes to prepare and don’t use anything that can’t be put in the dishwasher. I recommend the scrambled eggs!

From the authors of Plenty and Jerusalem just in time for the cook on your gift list. What i love about Ottolenghi's recipes is that they always turn out as hoped and usually look just as good as the photos.  Page 126 is really good and p122 was excellent.  The soups are delicious and p46 would be great for a holiday accompaniment. And there is a baking chapter too - p224 I'm coming for you!   Enjoy.

Saltie is a tiny sandwich shop in Brooklyn that my daughter adores. She gave me their cookbook for Christmas and to my delight, I savored each and every page.  It has the best focaccia recipe, made to cut into squares, split and use for sandwiches. There is homemade mayonnaise, pesto and pistou...all that will guarantee the most delectable sandwiches. If you think you know how to make eggs, you must read the recipes for Soft-Scrambled and Sunny Eggs Three Ways, even Hard Boiled and Pickled!!!  Buy it, read it, cook from it, you will be delighted.

Published: Cook's Illustrated - October 1st, 2012

Cook's Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen have a knack for writing recipes that I actually read and remember. Their ability to explain the crazy voodoo of food science astounds me, and finally published a cookbook focusing on the science! It's a great gift for someone who likes cooking, but hates cookbooks and wants to improve their cooking skills forever (by figuring out the 'why' of recipes, along with 'how').

Every day the staff at el Bulli sat down together for a family meal before service. The meals were simple, hearty affairs designed to help power the chefs through their long night, but still spiced with the creativity that made Feran Adria and elBulli world famous. With elBulli now closed, this book will be closest we can get to tasting Adria’s genius.
